Oil for horses has gained popularity in recent years as a substitute source of energy in the diet of the working horse.
The biggest benefit oils provide working horses is their very high energy content relative to grains, and you can reduce the bulk of feed fed without reducing the calorie content.
The most commonly used oils for horses are Linseed oil, Rice Bran oil (otherwise known as RBO), Coconut oil, Fish oils, Canola oil or Sunflower oil.
